Dan Gould Posted December 9, 2021 Report Share Posted December 9, 2021 If he didn't get the label "jazz" or was considered the highest-selling "jazz" artist of all time, I wouldn't give two craps about the G-Spot's music. But he does, and he is, so it does matter to me. I will admit to not exactly paying attention to smooth/quiet storm/New Age, but I did have to play a Dave Koz hosted syndicated smooth jazz show before I hosted my own jazz show on Mello 105-Tallahassee. My impression of smooth does not gibe with what G does. There are warmed over r&b licks and funky rhythms in smooth, owing to its derivation in Grover/Sanborn. G-Spot doesn't play blues as far as I am concerned. He plays sickly sweet melodies that the masses find appealing, to their eternal shame and embarrassment, if they had any sense of either.
